Equality. Unfortunately, racism, sexism and other hatreds and phobias affect the psychology of most people. With that understanding, we seek not only equal treatment in the workplace for all races, genders, ages, religions, and preferences, but we actively work to dismantle the silos that perpetuate a culture of us versus them.
Acceptance. Acceptance is not a passive stance; it’s an active one. As a company, we seek not to change others with our work, but to create space where growth can occur. We accept ourselves and others as we are, and in our words and behavior we demonstrate that value is not derived from age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or economic standing; but rather, human value is inherent.
Inclusion. With employees, partners, friends, and clients all over the world, Realized Worth is an open-border company. We will not shut the gate behind us and we will not stand by while walls are built around us. In our work and behaviors, we actively seek experiences that challenge preconceived ideas as to inoculate ourselves against the exclusion or objectification of any people group.
Compassion. While we are a for-profit company responsible for delivering an excellent product within the realm of the “bottom line,” we won’t neglect our hearts. We are a company where compassion – pain, sympathy, and concern for others and ourselves – is embraced as an essential contributor to success. We, along with our partners, clients, and friends, suffer together so that when the time comes, we authentically embrace celebration together, too.
The work we do is focused on the design and implementation of employee volunteer programs, but it has always been about more than volunteering. Volunteering makes us powerful agents of change. It is one of very few activities that can facilitate a respectful interaction between people and issues that are outside the other’s comfort zone. If we are going to see our society progress into one that is equitable, inclusive, accepting, and compassionate, we have to assume it is each of our individual responsibilities to contribute to making that change happen.
